Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway doesn’t seem too concerned about the growing line-up of Democrats looking to replace President Donald Trump in the oval office.
The line-up continues to grow with frontrunners like former Vice President Joe Biden still waiting to enter the race. Despite all the competition, Conway made it clear that she doesn’t think it would matter if 50 Democrats entered the race. She believes Trump will serve for eight years.
“And just today, we have the 19th Democrat running for president, Seth Moulton. Who? Seth Moulton, the fourth person from the House of Representatives. You have a bunch of Senators in there. I would just remind everybody, simple math. Whether it’s one, whether it’s 19, whether it’s 50 — anything times zero equals zero. Simple multiplication. So, 50 Democrats can run, 20, 19 are now running, but if your message is zero, it’s a big zero.”
Conway slammed Democrats for continuing to pursue the Russian conspiracy from the 2016 election following the report from Robert Mueller that found no such evidence. She claimed that Democrats and some in the media underestimated Trump in 2016 and they’re using the report to make up ground.

“They never saw it coming and [with evidence of conspiracy] they would be able to go back in time and say ‘a-ha.’ I didn’t see it because I was looking at legitimate metrics like media polling, wink, wink,” said Conway.
She later added, “They have to somehow save their own faces and if they could have found criminal conspiracy, they can say that we cheat, we lied, we stole the election. That would have done it.”
Conway managed the end of President Trump’s 2016 campaign, making her the first woman to manage a successful White House bid.
